More Relay For Life Cards

Hi! It's Noelle posting today! I have a few more cards to share.
I love window cards! There are so many choices. This is the Filigree Rectangle Window A7 Scallop Card - Vertical. I used the Awareness Ribbon #02 - Small cut in velvet in the inside.

This is a bad picture but there is a very pretty covered in glitter Awareness Ribbon between the 2 purple ones, it just doesn't show up well in the pictures. I have never turned this Gate Fold Crescent A2 Card with Band side ways before. I love how it looks like an envelope, but it is really a card.
Here is another window card. The Awareness Ribbon Window Square Scallop Card - Horizontal. I love that you can get your cards in Horizontal or Vertical.
Thanks for stopping by today! This is the weekend for Relay For Life. Please keep all the walkers in your thoughts.
Don't forget Friday is our blog hop with SOUS!

There's no place like home...

Hi all!
Becky here today to share a little Wizard of Oz card I made for a girlfriend using the simple A7 Card in Candy Apple Bazzill CrissCross cardstock!
(Poppy photo courtesy of Wikipedia)
I decided to cover the front of the card with an image of a poppy field I found online. Then I layered over the bottom edge of the field that great checkerboard! It's actually a stamp I got from Lost Coast Designs! I embossed it in TH's Antique Linen Distress Embossing Powder for my "Yellow Brick Road." Dorothy was then "popped" onto the road. (I found her at a local scrapbook store, but forgot to see who make her!)
Inside, I added a stamped ATC card with this perfect image from Stamp Camp! I stamped it 2x - one on the card itself, then again in glue on another scrap to glitter the shoes & then added them on top of the other image. Viola! "Ruby" Slippers!!
That's it for today!
See you in a few days for the big
CC&M Summer Mini Album Joint Hop with SOUS!!

Life Is Short

It's Nora Anne here today and I love ice cream! It doesn't have to be summer, it can be 10 degrees out and I still want ice cream :) This card was so fun to make and so easy starting out with the pre-cut and pre-scored A2 card in Bazzill Canvas Raven Black. I love grabbing the pre-cut card bases, it cuts out time and gives your project a clean look since they are scored perfectly every time!
Have a great Sunday, why not stop by Creative Cuts and More and stock up on some of your own card bases and lots of other fun stuff!

Come On Baby, Let's Do The TWIST

Good Morning Bloggers!  It's Noelle posting today and I'm late!  Yesterday when the lightening took out my power I knew I lost 10 hours of NOT saved work, [save, save,save!!]  But the don't forget to do your blog post slipped my mind!
Have you tried the A2 Twist card yet?  I LOVE it!  It comes together so quick!  I love that it's not a typical card and fun for whoever receives it! I used the A2 Twist Card with Layers, but I only used one layer this time.
Creative Cuts has several Twist Card Assortments as well if one just isn't enough!
All the stamps are by {ippity} and that ribbon is by Hobby Lobby!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Who Wants Popcorn?

Hi everyone! It's Taylor here, sharing a fun project today.  I adore this little popcorn box from Creative Cuts and More!  I snazzed it up with some gorgeous stickers.  They have a luxurious velvet feel to them - so lovely.  The brown stickers really "pop" (hahaha - I crack myself up!) with the Bazzill Lime Crush card stock.

I added a bit of bronze ribbon to my popcorn box, and a little tag using a large sentiment.

This whole thing came together really quickly, thanks to the great die cut from Creative Cuts and More. The popcorn box comes precut and scored, totally ready for assembly.  It's best to put it together with some Killer Red or White Tacky Tape.  It will make your life much easier, I promise!

Stamps: Happy Messages (Stampendous Perfectly Clear Stamps)
Card Stock: Bazzill Lime Crush
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: popcorn box die cut from Creative Cuts and More; May Arts ribbon; thread; Jumbo Damask Leaf & Scrollwork Border Class A'Peel stickers (Stampendous)

Grow Your Wings

Hi All! It's Nora Anne here today sharing a cute little gift card holder with you! That's my plan anyway, to use it as a gift card holder by attaching the gift card to the tag and writing a message on the back, but it can be used as a gift tag, or a hidden journaling tag on a scrapbook page as well.

(sorry for the bad photos, I don't have my good camera right now)

I started with the Scallop Circle-11 1/2" (see it's not just for scrapbook layouts!)  I cut it in half.

Then folded it in to the center. Put some tape along the bottom and the flap to close the bottom and add your embellishments. Easy peasy! and you can make two with each Scallop Circle! A quick and easy project that comes out super cute!
Thanks for stopping by today! HAPPY SHOPPING!

Slash Pocket Card

Hi Everyone! Danielle here, showing you something I made recently. The Slash Pocket Card came to me at the perfect time. My best friend is having a birthday. Since she is a bright, bubbly person I thought that is how I would make this to match. I loved this card, it's different from a traditional card and so fun!

Then for the inside I wanted to make it look like the birdie was wishing her the birthday greeting so I stamped him, colored him in and drew a word bubble.

Relay For Life

Terry owner of Creative Cuts and More asked many of her team if we could help with a project close to her heart.
Relay For Life for the American Cancer Society is the event
She asked for some finished cards to sell at the event’s silent auction.The team is called the Sole Sisters- so shoes are the theme.
I used Shoe Card for the base.

This is a A-7 Scalloped Card base

I used various materials for these shoes- Lets say I showed you all the blinged up cards this time. I will share the rest on another post.
Did you know you can order any of the Cancer Awareness products in various colors from Creative Cuts and More?

Butterflies Fly Free (LOTS of picts & text!!)

Hi all!
Becky here today to share another Out-of-the-Box idea with a Peek-a-View Box "Lantern" & the fabulous new Butterfly Assortment from Creative Cuts & More!!
When I first saw the Butterfly Assortment, I knew that I wanted to play with it! How could you not? With 3 different sized butterflies cut in all sorts of fun materials!!
Hanging Butterfly Lantern
I love working with the Peek-a-View Box for things other than its intent! It's such an easy product to think of different ways to doctor it up!! So, I got this crazy idea to cut a hole in the bottom & fit one of those battery-operated tea lights inside! Because it's meant to be hung, I had to tape the "peek-a-view" (acetate) portion to the cardstock part so that the bottom wouldn't fall out. Because of that, I needed the light to poke out a little from the bottom so that I can turn it on/off & change the battery when needed.
View from the bottom
(But, I did glue the tea light to a piece of floral foam inside so that it was more anchored in the hole in the bottom.)
Tea light inside
After I figured out the logistics of the light in the box, the rest was just plain fun! I added alcohol ink to one side of the acetate from the box to look like stained glass, and did the same to 4 vellum butterflies from the Assortment. 
Alcohol Ink on the acetate of the box
While that was all drying, I pulled out the Glimmer Mist in 2 shades of blue & added that to 3 of the "dictionary" butterflies & one aqua cardstock butterfly. When those were all dry, I used some Red Tacky Tape to attach one vellum butterfly to one dictionary butterfly for the bottom hanging ones; and the larger vellum butterfly to the cardstock one for the top. Using fishing line, I strung a length between the layers to hang from the bottom.
Bottom butterflies
In order to hang all the butterflies, the dominoes & suspend the entire thing from more fishing line, I used my crop-o-dile to put holes & eyelets in the top (4) & bottom (3). The top butterfly is attached with a dab of Aileen's Tacky Glue just on the bottom of the wings (That stuff is like cement!!).
Top of lantern butterfly
For the box itself, I inked it all over with walnut ink & added some Antique Brass Distress paint to shabby it up. I found some great images on Etsy for the dominoes (I drilled a hole in them & inserted an eye hook with my Dremel) that fit right in with my theme!
Top Domino - "Land of Enchantment" shop
Inside Domino - "Magicpug" shop
That's pretty much it! Hope you enjoyed my little treasure!
Here's just a few other things I've done with this great box...
For holding sea shells

For holding scary candy corn!
Or just a crazy circus box!
Don't forget to hop on over to Creative Cuts & More to order your own Butterflies & Peek-a-View Boxes to play with!!
See what kind of crazy creations you can do with them too!!
